Step aside, Ellen: It’s Melissa Etheridge’s turn to walk down the aisle.

The pop singer, 47, plans to tie the knot with her longtime partner, actress Tammy Lynn Michaels.

“We have four children and we’re trying to find the right time,” Etheridge told “Extra.”

“We are so grateful for the blessings from our friends and family as we commence our vows, and begin the rest of our lives together,” the pair said in a statement after exchanging vows in 2003.
